Add Xero tracking categories support

Add the ability to set the tracking category(s) for invoices sent to Xero.

Xero has the ability to add tracking categories to items, so you can break down income & expenditure by category. For example, like to separate things out by sales channels. So, it would be very useful if invoices coming from WooCommerce were automatically tagged with the right sales channel.

    We are currently separating sales categories manually, which is time consuming. Having product categories automatically mapped to Xero sales categories would be fantastic.

    At present, there doesn’t appear to be the automated functionality to add what Xero calls ‘Tracking Categories’ to sales invoices pushed through directly from WooCommerce.

    This would be a great feature as it would make the plug-in 100% automated

  3. Matt Lee says:

    This feature of Xero is being used more and more, so it would be great to automate this coming from Woo. Even if it was just a filter like woocommerce_xero_line_item_account_code.

    this would be bloody useful

  5. DanT says:

    Yeah, really need this badly now! Considering moving to Shopify : (

  6. lukas says:

    yup, it’s disappointing this is missing. a filter hook similar to this one would be enough: ‘woocommerce_xero_line_item_item_code’
